Feeling the Heat—Changes in the Human Perception of Temperature over China in Recent Decades[Apr 27, 2017]

How has thermal comfort changed in recent decades over China against the background of the global warming? Scientists carried out an investigation over mainland China using the index of effective temperature (ET), which combines the effects of temperature, humidity and wind speed. The human perception of temperature was classified on a scale based on the values of the ET index, ranging from very cold, cold, cool, comfortable, to warm, hot, and very hot.

Boffins Supercharge the 'hosts' File to Save Users Plagued by DNS Outages[Apr 27, 2017]

The venerable Domain Name System (DNS) is becoming known for fragility, and keeping track of your own favourite sites' IP addresses is a pain. So a group of researchers want to automate the upkeep of hosts to give users an emergency backup if their provider blacks out.

Nuclear Marker ITS Is Efficient for Identifying Species and Genera of Lauraceae[Apr 26, 2017]

Prof. LI Jie and his team from Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences used existing molecular barcodes: three cpDNA regions (rbcL, matK, psbA–trnH) and the nuclear marker ITS (ITS1+5.8S+ITS2), as well as the subunit ITS2, to examine the taxonomic classification and phylogeny of Lauraceae.
